with the war in iraq when george w. bush ran for reelection against john kerry, but voters by a small margin seemed to believe george bush would be the better leader. it cannot be said that the vote reflected a referendum on george w. bush's first term. the importance of the communications skill of a candidate to not be discounted as a factor, however. but all of this misses a different valuation that needs to be taken into account in judging between incumbent barack obama and his challenger mitt romney. that is the jinx of the second term on many presidents. only seven of 19 presidents elective to a second term avoided having a troubled or failed second term. that would give the country about a 38% chance of obama and the nation experiencing an improved security and economic climate after four years if obama is reelected. i do not suggest the gamble should not be taken. simply that history interplay in with politics might give us pause. what does history predict about a second term for barack obama? were he reelected with so few presidents having success at that time in office? what are the
sides need to do? let's talk with angela mcglowan, and mark hammond a former aid to john kerry and nice to see you both. i predict more face-to-face meetings and i think they'll get together, kind of like holiday dinners, you see a lot of people you might not choose to see, but you have to see them, right. >> you have to see them and you might not want to see them again for another year, but, he yes, rick, they have to come to the table again and again and again until we reach a deal. if we go off the fiscal cliff, it's predicted that we will get another recession, now they're saying if we go off the fiscal cliff it only impact certain americans with taxes increasing and it will affect our country and economy. and we need face-to-face meetings and i don't think that obamacare should be on the table. >> you do not think that obamacare should be on the table. >> no. >> i don't think that obamacare should be on the table. it's the number one priority for the lawmakers right now whether you're a democrat or a republican, this should be priority number one, it's when john boehner had the new
. the points that i make in the article, there is the point that john kerry may have lost the presidential election in 2004 because of the marriage issue. that is nonsense. john kerry may have lost for any number of reasons. including massachusetts. there has only been one time in american history that ohio has voted for a mass.-based presidential candidate. you actually make a better case that john kerry lost in ohio because of massachusetts. asked governor romney. same problem. even ohio. for the country, it is not quite settled on this issue. it would be smart for the court -- it's dumb or doma. the title of an article. doma is a profoundly stupid statute and it creates lots of dysfunctions and problems and headaches just to administer. it was passed in an hysterical fit. those are not constitutional arguments. the problem for justice ginsburg and justice kennedy is take that intuition and then somehow [unintelligible] it. rohmer can be read for almost anything or nothing, depending on what you want to do with it. that is what i think the boston university opinion is such a good one. it
of sympathy with her, the way they actually probably do with john kerry, her potential rival to secretary of state, having taken a bunch of delegation trips with mccain around the world. i don't think it should be disqualifying if obama decides to choose her as the next secretary of state. she's the ambassador to u.n. she's not in charge of intelligence and not in charge of intelligence reports. it is simultaneously true they scrub the reports she got of any al qaeda mention. that was probably done within the intelligence community herself. her job as u.n. ambassador was to tell what that intelligence report said on the sunday shows and that's what she did. i don't think there's any reason to disqualify r based on anything that's happened in the last year. and, frankly, i guess i'd cut her a little slack for some of the political attacks she's taken. i guess i don't agree with graham and mccain on this one. but if you're going to be a diplomat, you should probably be diplomatic all the way around. ( laughter ) you're going to come in for a little criticism. >> benghazi has almost taken
and get a payback? >> actually a very smart idea about how to do it. it was co-sponsored by john kerry and kay bailey hutchison is create a infrastructure bank. have the federal government seed it with capital but have private sector money. have the projectsawarded by a board, a group of technical experts that evaluate the projects on their merit rather than congressional district. guess who doesn't like this? most congressmen. >> they want to be able to reward them. >> they don't want infrastructure built that is based on merit and not based on pork. they talk about how they hate pork. but then they want the bridge back home. then they want the baseball field back home. so this is where presidential leadership can come in. this is where bipartisanship can come in. do you have broad agreement, you know, infrastructure is something everyone agrees the government has to be involved in. >> what if the deals are profitable and what part are not? if there is an infrastructure bank zsh bank, does that end up as a net cost to americans? yet it increases trade and increases protection from sto
retired and congressman of a congressional district, and john kerry for 11 years, and recruited to run for office. i was much younger than that. i love coming to the space of good lighting. i can speak to this personally because now that i am an elected official the corley woman serving on that body and the first woman of color on that body's 102 year history. [applause] >> why does that matter? why is that relevant? i appreciate the applause, nothing to do with a personal achievement. it is the collective and shared victory for all of us. it means the solutions we are developing in government are more comprehensive and fully informed because of the different perspective so i thought a great deal about this issue of attraction and retention but more than that, how do we keep native bostonians? we were losing young people who were raised here and going somewhere else. they do come back and go on this pilgrimage to see what else is out there but they do come back. to the point about social venues this is an issue i am working on. we have 22 distinctive neighborhoods and is easy to be ver
